The actual family room we had was clean and as expected but.. Why put the family room right above the main foyer where everyone comes in all night banging and screaming when they are pissed up coming from a hen night. We did talk to the woman on reception but apparently you have to complain when you are actually woken... More

Had a one night stop off recently and enjoyed staying at this hotel again despite a fire alarm at 9:00pm. The restaurant is better than the average Holiday Inn with an Italian flare at reasonable prices. Will definitely stay again when in the area

We stayed here on Saturday the 25th of July, the hotel staff were lovely the room we stayed in was on the ground floor and very clean. The hotel has a lovely restaurant and bar but unfortunately the bed was not comfortable this was the only let down.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us.

We found this a good hotel for our purposes, well located for the A1M, comfortable rooms and friendly, helpful staff. It is not as well appointed as some other Holiday Inns, but the staff make up for that. The car parking was satisfactory and the buffet breakfast was fine. The "signal strength" from our room to the publicised Wi-fi turned... More

Very pleasant hotel with nice frontage and grand art deco style staircase. Our room was bright, modern and quite spacious. We got a bed and breakfast deal for couples at £73 a night. When you consider what you pay for breakfast and high speed wi-fi at a Premier Inn the price is virtually identical but the room and the facilities... More

We travel up to Scotland a few times a year and are always looking for places to stay and break the trip. This hotel was a gamble as it is close to the busy A1.
